Hi there! I was dx in 2008 and I’ve had a few relapses but have generally managed to get through relatively unscathed. I have the usual mobility issues and the ever present fatigue, Anyway, I got my eyes tested yesterday and failed the peripheral vision test very badly, I’d asked the optometrist (how’s my spelling?) to have a look at my right eye as it has started to get a wee bit blurry now and then and always when my fatigue’s at it’s worst, it also feels swollen although the optometrist said that it doesn’t appear to be, He took a photograph of my optic nerve and didn’t see anything wrong, I don’t know anything about the optical problems in MS and I’m a wee bit scared to look online as I am burying my head in the sand and not wanting to know if my driving licence will be withdrawn, and also worried that some Dr will start meddling with my eyes, I don’t just have MS, I’m a total wimp too if anyone has any knowledge of the peripheral test and what some of the reasons I failed so badly might be?
ms, scared of Dr’s and an ever increasingly hypochondriac man would appreciate any info
